This training course provides the opportunity for delegates to practise and improve their ability to model LBOs using Excel. On this course delegates imagine working with a business that is contemplating taking on extra debt as part of an LBO.
Participants start with a blank spreadsheet and create a detailed cash flow model from scratch, just like they might have to when modelling in their own workplace. Delegates are guided through a complete model build up and are shown all the steps they need to take. All through the course plenty of guidance and assistance is given by the course instructor.
As part of their work on the course delegates create a full set of forecast financial statements for the business. Delegates can then consider the impact of an LBO, seeing how the business performs under stress, how equity returns flex, and how key financial ratios and bank covenant tests respond with a change in circumstances.
Detailed LBO modelling work
As part of their work on this course delegates “build up” an integrated financial statement model for a business that has undertaken an LBO.
At the end of the course participants will have a record of their own work and a permanent record of the steps they have taken to create their own LBO model. By the end of the course participants will understand:
- Key concepts in acquisition finance
- How acquisitions are structured
- The detailed functioning of levered deals
- The impact of using different debt and equity instruments
- How to analyse leveraged acquisitions and buyouts
- The essential principles involved in modelling LBOs.
The time on the course is designed to provide participants with the tools they need to continue with their own efforts to model buyouts or leveraged acquisitions as they return to their workplace.
